Hex; Or Printing In The Infernal Method
While obsessing over Sunn O))), I was led to their inspiration, Earth. However, I grabbed this one on a whim not knowing that their new material was a major departure from their early, pioneering drone. Even though it was very different from my expectations, I was exhilarated by what I heard. It's slow alright, but not distorted. This record sounds as if drone music were forged before Link Wray poked holes in his amplifier's speaker. The tones heard are disturbing, desolate, & at times, majestic. There are definite country western influences here as the whole album evokes the American Old West frontier. Top notch stuff. FYI: The album is subtitled, "Or Printing In The Infernal Method". Great subtitle!
